hillary clinton, chuck hagel, leon panetta and now john brennan. are they getting what they want out of this, which is basically to try to put some mud on the president's record? >> absolutely. i think that's been the clear goal. >> i think actually not. if you look particularly at the hearings of chuck hagel and hillary clinton, you see a lot of basically republican free lansing going on. i was surprised at how the lack of collective, thoughtful questioning -- you would have thought that they would have gotten in behind closed doors beforehand and said, what's our line of questioning going to be, what is second kwengs and thoughtful? in fact, that wasn't the case which is why hillary clinton most vividly gave as good as she got and came out on the winning side. i think hagel, given his inconsistencies came away unscarred. i think it's also interesting, most folks may not know this, the suggestion made yesterday by dianne feinstein of having another court look at this stuff, well, she made that suggestion that at the very moment a particular federal judge, who i happen to know is sit

better for chuck hagel to be confirmed as defense secretary, perhaps as early as next week. although some lawmakers are softening their criticism. tough opposition continues on capitol hill. >> yeah. >> in a letter, 15 republican senators urged for hagel to withdraw his nomination including marco rubio and ted cruz. the letters read, in part, "while we respect senator hagel's honorable military service in the interest of national security, we respectfully request that you withdraw his nomination. it would be unprecedented for a secretary of defense to take office without the broad base of bipartisan support and confidence needed to serve effectively in this critical position. ted cruz at it again, with respect, with respect, with respect. in the last 50 years, no other secretary of defense has been confirmed with more than three members voting against him and in the entire history of the position, no one has been confirmed with more than 11 no votes." >> that's sort of circular logic. you could make that argument. democrats could do that to any republican. if we just get 20 or 30 against
confident that things are shifting in their direction. >> let's shift gears with you, amie. chuck hagel's team pushing back hard on reports that he might drop out as secretary of defense? >> my sense is he'll be confirmed, taking a little longer, but white house is confident they have the votes to push him in. he is getting ready for the post, so i anticipate it will happen in the coming days. >> ed, what's behind the senate armed services committee, still not scheduling a vote? >> republicans on the economy want to know how he made money in recent years. worked with a lot of foreign outlets and hasn't disclosed that information. he says fiduciary responsibility not to get into that you need 60 to hold off a filibuster. five republicans in the senate wouldn't support a filibuster. no cabinet nominee has ever been filibustered in the senate, not in modern times, if that were to happen, the wheels would come off in the senate, the democrats will woo get apoplectic and change the rules as punishment. might they wait a few more days to get month information? yes. is chuck hagel going to los
around the president. >> what's the latest? the president saying good-bye to leon panetta. chuck hagel hasn't been confirmed -- >> chuck hagel -- at the white house, they're saying he's going to get confirmed. they had the 55 democrat and independent votes that they need. they still say a filibuster would not be successful. but in chuck hagel and in john kerry, what the president has is not a team of rivals. it's more a team of boosters. people he feels comfortable with. that's the way he's going, clearly, in the second term. not a lot of sort of outsiders that he doesn't know or feel will support him. >> we'll know when that final confirmation in the senate armed services committee -- >> we don't. although the chairman has said, you've had requests for more information about financial disclosure, this is more than is required. it's very clear that levin wants to get a vote going quickly. they'd like to have hagel confirmed by the 27th. >> gloria, thanks very much. >>> violent protests erupting on the streets of tunisia. lisa sylvester is monitoring that and some of the other top stori
nomination than was chuck hagel the week before. he was far more confident, far more informed, authoritative. but this is the first time it was ever debated, the subject. i mean it's gone undebated. and i have to concede that much of the criticism, i think from conservative press is absolutely valid. if this were george w. bush and dick cheney and we had increased by sixfold the number of unmanned attacks on other countries that are not combatant countries, that were not at war with, there would have been far more hue and cry. and it is interesting that the president, the only criticism in the president seems to be among a few liberals, and the support seems to be from people like john bolton-- and so it's a debate i think we have to have, we should have and it's been cloaked in secrecy and secrecy is the sacrosanct secular religion of this city. >> woodruff: so this has stirred it up? >> i think so, because of the leaked memo and the system, we are having a debate about drones. and i guess if i want a drone policy i want it run by a franciscan, not a jesuit. but he didn't really defend it,
secretary will have to wait longer to find out if he has the senate support. a confirmation vote on chuck hagel has been delayed. so the critics can take a closer look at his finances. >> 7:05 and also making headlines on the hill, another hearing focused on the u.s. consulate attack in libya that left a u.s. ambassador and three other americans dead. defense secretary will testify. >>> a team of top house democrats will unveil their gun control proposals. call for assault weapons ban and similar to what's in president obama's plan. and speaking of president obama, the president will meet with house democrats today. his second day selling his second term agenda to law makers in a retreat for democrats. they will gather in virginia. the president is trying to build support on issues ranging from the economy to immigration to guns. just days before his state of the union address. >> massive military budget cuts are taking their toll in a very high profile way. defense secretary has signed off on cutting the aircraft carrier fleet from 2 to 1. the move is creating havoc for families in norfo
for why he wants the job. and that's one thing that we really didn't get a sense of from chuck hagel throughout the about three hours of testimony, he really made a passionate case for his love of serving the country, his expertise in this area, and the seriousness with which he would take some of the concerns these senators brought to him. promising more transparency, promising truthfulness when one democrat, in particular, said she has been, quote, jerked around by just about every cia director in her long tenure and time on that specific committee. so he was very persuasive there. when richard talks about the trouble he had with waterboarding, in part, he was really trying to avoid using the word "torture" because it does have a legal implication, and it has such a political implication. that that would have been such a huge headline if he had, in fact, called it torture. so he said pretty much everything around that. he does have the issue of having been part of a time when these things were used in saying, quite plainly, he didn't do anything to try to stop it. nears there's no
senator chuck hagel has been nominated to replace panetta. that confirmation vote continues and has been postponed. >>> a look at this massive crowd that filled the streets in tunisia. this was a public funeral of an opposition leader shot dead outside his home wednesday. thousands of grieving and angry folks marching with his coffin to a cemetery. many believe it was a political assassination. riot police have violently put down several public demonstrations since that shooting. >>> and of course getting back to california, one of our main stories here, the hunt for the former cop now a murder suspect. christopher dorner accused of killing three people around l.a. and declaring war on the entire lapd in a rampage seeking revenge for being fired. casey wian is with us from los angeles, and paul would ybuchan big bear. paul, i want to start off with you because we heard from the sheriff there and they continue the search even though the weather is pretty bad in big bear. they lost his tracks because the ground is frozen. so how are they pursuing this? >> reporter: well, they're continuing
got to tell you, it's, many, many, many years ago. >> quickly, chuck hagel, a vote of his nomination postponed this week. senate republicans saying they need more time, and more financial information. they said that the gop action was unprecedented saying that in part, the committee cannot have two different sets of financial disclosing standard force one nominee and then one for senator hagel and one for other nominees. what is going on with the hagel nomination? >> if it sounds like a jury asking for more information for the judge after it's sequestee- after it's sequestered to make a decision. that is what it is. they are acting exactly like a jury. this is a great deal of political theater. i heard from a number of people who think, fairly certain that hagel has enough votes to get confirmed. >> yeah. >> but it's not a sure thing and especially since his weak performance in front of the committee last week. i think they will make it as difficult for him as they can. >> last question, president obama, among those honoring leon panetta yesterday in an armed forces tribute. what is
friend, chuck hagel, the nominee for defense secretary, last week, and this week, yesterday, in that hearing was leon panetta and chairman of the joint chiefs, he went after them pretty tough, too. a lot of issues here, benghazi, aid to the rebels in syria, the drone strikes and enhanced interrogation as you mentioned the whole immigration reform issue. lots to talk to john mccain about. >> the interesting thing, we seem to be at a fairly critical time as we get the new secretaries come in, secretary kerry, of course, as well, and some real burning issues overseas that don't seem to go away. >> well, absolutely. and you know, you have all this in the middle east, we used to be able rely on a few friendly dictators, frankly. now you have the arab spring, al-qaida affiliates in africa. 60,000 people killed in syria. so it is a very dangerous, very tense time. of course iran continuing with its nuclear program. >> chris, good to see you as always. we look forward to the show. >> you bet. >> want to let you know you can catch fox news sunday at 9:00 sunday morning right after fo
